Two hours of music that will lead you by the hand into the encroaching darkness of the night, a distilling crepuscule surrounding you like a heavy cloak. These tunes appear as both your Charon, the still deep and as glimmers rippling on the twilight surf. Enjoy the lonely, haunting darkness.

20 different acts in this show, here is some information about some of them:

The Seeds:

"Pushin' Too Hard" peaked at no. 36 in the charts upon re-release, after initially failing to chart under the title "(You're) Pushin' Too Hard". The song consists of only two chords. The story goes that it was written by singer Sky Saxon while sitting in the front seat of a car waiting for his girlfriend to finish grocery shopping at a supermarket. Some radio stations banned it, believing it to be about pushing drugs! Part of the tune was incorporated into Frank Zappa's rock opera Joe's Garage.

Countries represented: USA, England, Poland, Sweden, France, Burma, Germany, Canada, Norway.


Professor Edgeworth, of All Souls’, avoided conversational English, persistently using words and phrases that one expects to meet only in books. One evening, Lawrence returned from a visit to London, and Edgeworth met him at the gate. “Was it very caliginous in the Metropolis?”

“Somewhat caliginous, but not altogether inspissated”, Lawrence replied gravely.
